Admin password for belkin wireless

I bought a Belkin N300 as a replacement router. I hooked it up and all was good. When I tried to go to the configuration settings it asked for a password. In the past I had always just entered through this (left blank), but when I tried this one it seems it had a password preset in it. I have tried everything I could think of and cannot get pass the password issue. I keep getting a "password incorrect please reenter password" message. Any ideas or thoughts??

    Most routers have these as defaults. If these don't work, refer to your router's manual or website.

    That would be your WEP, WPA, etc. I am talking in terms of your router's settings, like when you type your router's local ip in the address bar or routerlogin.net which I believe is for Netgear routers. You are then prompted for a username and password, which I posted some defaults for.
  4. I found out that it was my browser causing the problem. When I opened the router with Google Chrome instead of IE I was able to use the blank password. Thanks for your reply though, I appreciate it.
